“I am here to ask you for your prayers, for your support, for your efforts…”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich officially announced his presidential run Tuesday, telling a crowd at Ohio State University that “the sun is rising” in America again.
“I am here to ask you for your prayers, for your support, for your efforts because I have decided to run for president of the United States,” he said.
In a speech that described the woes of Americans worried about lost jobs, health care costs and crushing student debt — and that made a point to reference the specific worries of minorities — Kasich also tried to strike an optimistic note.
“The sun is rising, and the sun is going to rise to the zenith in America again,” he said. “I promise you.”
